Lent

The experience of Lent is like that of going into the desert. It can be a critical moment of growth. The following reflection might help to focus our fasting during this desert time.

Fast from worry and feast on divine order by trusting in God.
Fast from complaining and feast on appreciation.
Fast from negatives and feast on affirmatives.

Fast from unrelenting pressures and feast on unceasing prayer.

Fast from bitterness and feast on forgiveness.

Fast from self-concern and feast on compassion for others.
Fast from shadows of sorrow and feast on the sunlight of serenity.
Fast from idle gossip and feast on purposeful silence.

Fast from judging others and feast on the Christ within them.
Fast from emphasis on difference and feast on the unity of life.
Fast from apparent darkness and feast on the reality of life.

Fast from thoughts of illness and feast on the healing power of God.
Fast from words that pollute and feast on phrases that purify.
Fast from discontent and feast on gratitude.

Fast from anger and feast on optimism.
Fast from personal anxiety and feast on eternal truth.

Fast from discouragement and feast on hope.
Fast from facts that depress and feast on what uplifts.
Fast from lethargy and feast on enthusiasm.

Fast from suspicion and feast on truth.
